Former CBN Governor Emefiele set for another Court trial



Former CBN Governor Emefiele set for another Court trial

The Federal Government is set to initiate trial proceedings against the former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, on charges related to alleged economic sabotage.

Godwin Emefiele, whose previous trial was abruptly halted 24 hours earlier, is scheduled to appear before a High Court in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

According to a notice issued for the trial before Justice Hamza Muazu, Emefiele will be arraigned alongside an individual named Ramalan Yaro.

A court registrar, opting to remain unidentified, confirmed Emefiele’s imminent appearance in court for the plea-taking session, where he will declare his innocence or guilt.

Maxwell Opara, a member of Emefiele’s defense team, affirmed the receipt of the arraignment notice, signaling Emefiele’s obligation to present himself in court.

Notably, the former CBN governor is expected to be brought before the court by Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) Matthew Burkaa, who pledged to ensure Emefiele’s presence for the trial.

This commitment was made as part of Emefiele’s bail conditions granted by Justice Olukayode Adegbola Adeniyi, also from the FCT High Court.
